Here's the answer because I didn't really expect anyone to do the math.

1. 20 years

Here's the kicker.

2. 80%. EVERY single budget line item (less Social Security) would need to be cut by 80%.

Cue the fat lady with the viking hat.....

Ha!

But, to restate the obvious, it is amazing though how ALL aspects of future budget woes do go away, LITERALLY, if you inc the age for SS/medc a few yrs (seriously--this is the EASY math).

All aspects of SS future budget woes go away. Increasing the SS age to 187 doesn't do anything in the long run if we continue to run deficit budgets.
